10:20 am – The Canning Basin of Western Australia, Discovering Unconventional Opportunity
Robert Hull has over thirty-four years geoscience experience including over ten years in microseismic acquisition design and interpretation, fiber optic fracture imaging, and geomechanical modeling. His current key interest is in reservoir and completions interactions observed though various technologies to better optimize and develop unconventional resources. He has a strong background including M.S. in seismic stratigraphy and sedimentology and high-powered skills in numerous geoscience software systems. He is a frequent presenter at industry conferences, publishes regularly, as well as has developed patents for the industry. Before Black Mountain, he was a Geotechnical Specialist at Pioneer Natural Resources for 19 years. At Pioneer, he worked at the senior level in the Geophysical Technology Group as a leader in 3D seismic, microseismic, geomechanics and fiber optics. He also provided interpretations for the Permian Basin, Barnett Shale, West Africa and South Africa for Pioneer. Prior to Pioneer, Hull worked as a geophysical specialist for Maxus Energy - YPF- Repsol in Indonesia. He holds a Bachelors in Geology from the University of Rochester and an M.S. in Geosciences from the University of Texas in Dallas.
